Islam and Christianity
Whatever the ideology might be on the part of those who oppose us as Christians, there must always be a desire on our part that they might be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth. Jesus' charge to Paul applies to us as well: "I am sending you to them to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me." (Acts 26:17-18). This document is written with the prayer that the "Koran Curtain" might come down and that Muslims everywhere might come to Christ -- the only Savior of the world. In so doing, Jesus' command in Matthew 5:44 is fulfilled:
"Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you."
At the same time, Christians must come to grips with one of the most aggressive and dangerous ideologies we have ever faced -- more threatening than Marxism and secularism -- Islam. The purpose of this study is to help us face the real threat of Islam. Paul was not averse to naming his enemies. "Alexander the metalworker did me a great deal of harm. The Lord will repay him for what he has done. You too should be on your guard against him, because he strongly opposed our message." ( 2 Timothy 4:14-15) . There is the mistaken idea in the West that we ought not to say anything negative about Islam. Such a thing, we are told, would be politically incorrect -- evidence of so-called "Islamophobia." This mindset is extremely dangerous. It would be similar to not mentioning the danger of Communism during the Cold War. Paul very openly recognized his enemies, but at the same time he knew it was for God alone to repay them for their evil. So it is with Christians in the face of Islamic threats and violence. We must be aware, however, who our enemies are -- what they are saying and what they are doing -- and how we can protect ourselves against them. We must be as our Lord taught his disciples as He sent them out: "I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. But be on your guard against men..." (Matthew 10:16-17a).
All over the world Islam is on the march and is now in control of 25% of the world's countries and 25% of the world's population -- expanding rapidly into Europe and the US.
Throughout sub-Saharan Africa Islam is aggressively moving southward. No other ideology has ever wielded so much power and influence in the history of the world. It is being fed by multiplied billions of petrodollars supplied by Saudi Arabia to spread the most radical form of Islam -- Wahhabi Sunni Islam. This is being accomplished, among other means, by Saudi-supported mosques and Koran schools (madrassas) throughout the world -- many of which are in Pakistan. (More about this later.)
To understand the threat of Islam the following outline will be used:
1. What is Islam? (It is not really a religion as such but a politico-religious ideology.)
2. What is the goal of Islam? (It is world conquest.)
3. How is Islam accomplishing its goal of world conquest? (There is increasing Muslim militancy and aggression.)
4. What is the history of Islamic aggression against Christianity and the West? (Muslim aggression dwarfs anything that happened during the Crusades which are always cited by Muslims as an example of Christian aggression.)
5. What is Islam doing to Islamize the West -- Europe and the US? (Immigration, population and penetration)
6. What is the goal of current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? (The stated goal is democratization -- an impossible goal in any Muslim country.)
7. Conclusion: Islamic aggression past and present is a fact made plain in this document. It has been especially destructive for Christians and Jews. It would be foolish and dangerous not to take the present threat of Islamic world domination seriously.
1. What is Islam? (It is really not a religion as such -- but a politico-religious ideology with worldwide ambitions.)
It is a grave error to view Islam as simply another religion among many others. This would be to accept a sinister masquerade. Simply put, Islam demands that all of life be dominated by the Koran -- political, social and religious -- by means of Sharia law. No part of culture is exempt. There is no better example of this in the world than the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia -- the land where Islam began in the 600s and where it is practiced in its purest fashion. No aspect of life escapes the long arm of the Koran which serves as Saudi Arabia's constitution -- Sharia law ruling every detail of life. (There will be a description of Sharia law later in this document.) The US State Department makes a yearly assessment of civil rights abuses around the world, and every year Saudi Arabia is right at the top of those countries which deny basic human rights. Oppression of women is the rule. There are no basic freedoms -- freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of assembly or freedom of the press. Draconian medieval forms of punishment are the rule -- such as the stoning of women thought to be immoral -- and the severing of a thief's hands. Homosexuals are hanged, and anyone daring to depart from Islam can legally be executed. The list goes on and on. It can be accurately said that Saudi Arabia supports a barbaric Islamic dictatorship operating under Sharia law. As one of the five pillars of Islam, every faithful Muslim should make a pilgrimage (Hajj) to Mecca located in Saudi Arabia reinforcing the centrality of that country in the scheme of Muslim orthodoxy.
A radical fundamental Islam (Wahhabi Sunni Islam), encouraged and funded by Saudi Arabia, is gaining momentum in the Muslim world. It was this fundamental form of Islam which helped to launch the Saudi ruling party into power in 1932. Billions of petrodollars now spread the hate and intolerance of Wahhabi Sunni Islam -- funding thousands of mosques, madrassas (Koran schools) -- and front organizations -- around the world with connections to the Muslim Brotherhood. It is no accident that 16 of those attacking the World Trade Center were Wahhabi Saudis. Wahhabi Islam is anti-Jew, anti-Christian, anti-Shiite and anti-Suffi. In fact, it excludes and opposes all other religious, political and economic systems other than its own. This is the matrix out of which al-Qaeda was born -- and monsters like Osama bin Laden who exist to kill as many infidels as they can in the name of Wahhabi Islam -- under the authority of the Koran. We are all familiar with the bloody attacks of al- Qaeda all over the world -- Lebanon, Tanzania, Kenya, USS Cole, New York, Madrid, London, Bali, Manila -- just to name a few places and incidents. Al-Qaeda cells exist all over the world planning strikes against the kuffar (unbelievers/infidels) -- and especially against the US and Israel -- thought to be the archenemies of Islam. At the same time covert Muslim activities and fronts are active around the world to gradually subdue the West -- a Muslim tactic called "dawah."
All radical Islamist groups are loosely knit together with Sheikh Osama bin Laden recognized as their hero and ideological leader (except for radical Shiite groups which take their leadership from Iran). Although bin Laden is now out of the picture, Islamists will continue to view him as a hero and "Muslim warrior" as Hamas announced after his death on May 1, 2011. Most likely the al-Qaeda number two in command will take full leadership, Ayman al-Zawahiri, the Muslim Brotherhood mentor of bin Laden. As the largest and most influential Muslim organization, the Muslim Brotherhood has offices in more than 80 countries -- including the US. (The most comprehensive report on Muslim Brotherhood influence in America is: "Sharia: the Threat to America" -- compiled by an impressive list of sponsors for The Center For Security Policy. The whole 149-page report can be obtained online. This is a must read and must not be ignored.) Whether it is the Taliban (Afghanistan, Pakistan), the Sudan under Omar al-Bashir, Jemaah Islamiyah (Indonesia), the Muslim Chechen Army (Chechnya), the Muslim Brotherhood (Egypt), Hamas (Gaza), Boko Haram (Nigeria), al-Shabaab (Somalia), Abu-Sayah (the Philippines), there is the single motive of global jihad to oppose the kuffar -- the US and Israel bearing the brunt of Muslim hatred.
Alexandria, Virginia, is home to the Islamic Saudi Academy -- one of the thousands of madrassas worldwide with close ties to the Wahhabi sect funded by the Saudis. An eleventh-grade textbook teaches the Day of Judgment will be when Muslims fight and kill Jews: "Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, here is a Jew hiding behind me. Come here and kill him." We don't have to go to Pakistan, Iran or Saudi Arabia to find incitement to violence in Wahhabi school curricula. It's right here in the good ol' USA!
In the West we are na´ve to think the mosque down the street is just another religious organization like a church or synagogue. (While there are moderate Muslims as represented by Dr. Zuhdi Jasser and his American Islamic Forum, their view is not the most popular among American Muslims -- nor is it the most popular form of Islam worldwide.) The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is much more popular and also has the ear of both the US government and the media. They do not publicize their historical roots in the Muslim Brotherhood; neither do they publicize their real motives. They deny and cover up anything which would shed an adverse light on Islam and cry "Islamophobia" whenever anything negative is brought up about Islam -- (for example, the Rep. King's (R-NY), March, 2011, hearings in the US House documenting actual cases of American Muslim radicalization). Believe it or not, CAIR criticized Rep. King instead of criticizing American Muslims who have killed other Americans! Sadly, CAIR was joined by the ACLU and the political left. Unbelievable!
CAIR presents Islam as just another religion among many, but this is not possible since by nature Koranic dictatorial rule and Islam are inseparable. Islam and government must be the same thing in orthodox Muslim teaching. Democracy is both impossible and undesirable. Again, the proof is in the pudding. Just take a long, hard look at Saudi Arabia -- the motherland of Islam and the purest example of its practice. The hypocrisy of CAIR is evident as they rush around the US pushing for the rights of Muslims to build mosques and to practice their customs. They are only too glad to claim our constitutional rights to further their cause. What they do not mention, however, is the result of Islamic rule which they seek to impose on us (but do not openly promote). All the constitutional rights for which they are now clamoring would be eliminated if they were to gain the majority -- with the Koran reigning supreme. (More on this in the section, "5. What is Islam doing to Islamize the West -- Europe and the US?")
Islam is not just another religion as CAIR would have us believe. It is a politico-religious ideology which seeks to rule every aspect of society under the aegis of the Koran. It is anti-democratic and dictatorial -- filled with hate against the kuffar.
Muslim ideology is best summarized in Sharia law (a distillation of the Koran and the Hadith) which expresses the Islamic goal of dominating every aspect of life:
1. Jihad defined as "to war against all non-Muslims to establish the religion" is the duty of every Muslim and Muslim head of state (Caliph). Muslim Caliphs who refuse jihad are in violation of Sharia and unfit to rule.
(Reading through the Koran there is much about waging war for the cause of Allah, i.e. jihad: "...seize them (unbelievers) and slay them wherever you find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks." Surah 4:89; "...fight and slay the unbelievers wherever you find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war);..." Surah 9:5; "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the last day." Surah 9:29; "O you who believe, fight the unbelievers who gird you about, and let them find firmness in you; and know that Allah is with those who fear him." Surah 9:123. In some cases within these commands to fight unbelievers there is the provision that they (unbelievers) may be allowed to live if they convert to Islam. Isn't that generous of them! Organizations like CAIR will play down jihad verses from the Koran, but they cannot be denied. There is no mystery why followers of Allah and the Koran continue to fight against non-Muslims around the world -- something they have always done. As you read the Koran, are there innocuous-sounding verses? Certainly. But the many verses teaching hate and war against the kuffar are enough to characterize the Koran as an evil book.)
2. A Caliph can hold office through seizure of power meaning through force.
3. The head of an Islamic State (Caliph) cannot be charged, let alone be punished for serious crimes such as murder, adultery, robbery, theft, drinking and in some cases of rape (Hudood cases) -- Codified Islamic Law Vol 3 #914C and page 188 of Hedaya the Hanafi manual.
4. A percentage of Zakat (alms) must go towards jihad.
5. It is obligatory to obey the commands of the Caliph, even if he is unjust.
6. A Caliph must be a Muslim, a non-slave and a male.
7. The Muslim public must remove the Caliph in one case, if he rejects Islam.
8. A Muslim who leaves Islam (apostate) must be killed immediately.
9. A Muslim will be forgiven of murder of a) an apostate b) an adulterer c) a highway robber. Making vigilante street justice and honor killing acceptable.
10. A Muslim will not get the death penalty if he kills a non-Muslim.
11. Sharia never abolished slavery and sexual slavery and highly regards it. A master will not be punished for killing his slave. (Slavery still exists among some Arab Muslims.)
12. Sharia dictates death by stoning or beheading for sins like killing, adultery and prostitution; and other Quranic corporal punishments like amputation of limbs (chopping hands and feet), floggings, beatings and other forms of cruel and unusual punishments even for sins like stealing, sexual promiscuity, robbery, burglary etc.
13. Non-Muslims are not equal to Muslims and must comply to Sharia (pay Zizzya: poll tax) if they are to remain safe. They are forbidden to marry Muslim women, publicly display wine or pork, recite their own religious scriptures, or openly celebrate their religious holidays or funerals. They are forbidden from building new churches or building them higher than mosques. They may not enter a mosque without permission. A non-Muslim is no longer protected if he commits adultery with a Muslim woman or if he leads a Muslim away from Islam.
14. It is a crime for a non-Muslim to sell weapons to someone who will use them against Muslims. Non-Muslims cannot curse a Muslim, say anything derogatory about Allah, the Prophet, or Islam or expose weak points of Muslims. However, Muslims can curse, criticize or say anything derogatory they like to the religions of others. (This is indicative of Muslims -- always a one-way street going their way.)
15. A non-Muslim cannot inherit from a Muslim.
16. Banks must be Sharia compliant and interest is not allowed.
17. No testimony in court is acceptable from people of low-level jobs, such as street sweepers or a bathhouse attendant. Women in such low-level jobs such as professional funeral mourners cannot keep custody of their children in case of divorce.
18. A non-Muslim cannot rule even over a non-Muslim minority.
19. Homosexuality is punishable by death.
20. There is no age limit for marriage of girls under Sharia. The marriage contract can take place anytime after birth and consummated at age 8 or 9.
21. Rebelliousness on the part of the wife nullifies the husband's obligation to support her, gives him permission to beat her, and to keep her from leaving the home.
22. Divorce is only in the hands of the husband and is as easy as saying, "I divorce you" and becomes effective even if the husband did not intend it.
23. There is no common property between a husband and a wife, and the husband's property does not automatically go to the wife after his death.
24. A woman inherits half of what a man inherits. Sister gets half of what brother gets.
25. A man has the right to have up to 4 wives, and a wife has no right to divorce him even if he is polygamous.
26. The dowry is given in exchange for the woman's sexual organs.
27. A man is allowed to have sex with slave women and also with women captured in battle (concubines), and if the enslaved woman is married her marriage is annulled.
28. The testimony of a woman in court is half the value of a man; that is, two women are equal to one man.
29. A woman loses custody if she remarries.
30. A rapist may only be required to pay the bride-money (dowry) without marrying the rape victim.
31. A Muslim woman must cover every inch of her body which is considered "Awrah," a sexual organ. (Some schools of Sharia allow the face, and some don't.)
32. A Muslim man is forgiven if he kills his wife caught in the act of adultery. However, the opposite is not true for women since he "could be married to the woman he is caught with."
33. It is obligatory for a Muslim to lie if the purpose is obligatory and is known as Taqiyya (Islamic Deception). That means that for the sake of abiding with Islam's commandments, such as jihad, a Muslim is obliged to lie and should not have any feelings of guilt or shame associated with this kind of lying. (In other words, lying is not only permissible but obligatory for Muslims in order to further jihad, i.e. violent world domination.)
34. The perpetrators of genocide, mass rape and plunder will not be punished if they repent -- Codified Islamic Law Vol 1 # 13.
35. To prove rape, a woman must have 4 male witnesses. Women's testimony is not accepted -- Pakistans's Hudood ordinance 7 of 1979 amended by 8B of 1980. [Thousands of raped women and girls in many countries have been charged with Zena (physical relations outside marriage) and punished by Sharia courts for want of witnesses.]
36. All modern music including sexually explicit music of any kind is strictly prohibited and punishable by Islam Sharia code of justice. Only Islamic songs are allowed.
(Please note how women are severely demeaned in Sharia law.)
Sharia law as quoted above in numbers 1-36 is found on the internet site: "The Australian Islamist Monitor," February 5, 2011, Syed Kamran Mirza.
Note: The above are the most important parts of Islamic Sharia law which were devoutly practiced by the early Islamic rulers (the Holy Prophet and his four rightly guided Caliphs) and also by the Caliphs of Ummyad and Abbasid Dynasties who ruled from Bagdad (today's Iraq) and later by the Ottoman Empire -- with very few variations.
Saudi Arabia, Iran, Talibani Afghanistan, Sudan, northern Nigeria, Somalia, Yemen and some other Arab nations are practicing Sharia law with minor variations. Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kuwait, Qatar, Abu Dhabi, UAE are practicing Sharia to varying degrees, and each of the 55 Muslim countries worldwide incorporate Sharia to some extent into their legal system.
Anyone who believes Sharia can in any way be acceptable within Western democracies is either ignorant of what Sharia treaches or purposely desires to undermine democratic government. The ideology of Islam cannot be understood without comprehending the horror of Sharia law (Islamic law) and how it controls all of life.
2. What is the Goal of Islam? (It is nothing short of world conquest.)
When Muslims are not seeking to hide their real motives (such as CAIR is fond of doing), it is best to let Muslims speak for themselves when it comes to their ultimate goals. Sayid Abdul Ala Maududi, 1903-1979, is a most influential Sunni Muslim Pakistani journalist, political philosopher, and theologian. The former Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran was highly influenced by him. We are all familiar what he did to Iran - creating a rogue Islamic state which threatens the entire Mideast. States Maududi: "Islam wishes to destroy all states and governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and program of Islam regardless of the country or the nation which rules it. The purpose of Islam is to set up a state on the basis of its own ideology and programme regardless of which nation assumes the role of standard bearer of Islam or the rule of which nation is undermined in the process of establishment of an ideological Islamic state. It must be evident to you from this discussion that the objective of Islamic jihad is to eliminate the rule of an un-Islamic system and establish in its stead an Islamic system of state rule. Islam does not intend to confine this revolution to a single state or a few countries: the aim of Islam is to bring about a universal revolution." (Jihad in Islam, printed by the Holy Koran Publishing House, Beirut, 1980, p. 9) Why don't we believe Muslims when they plainly tell us what is their goal? Why do we pretend that Islam is just another religion among others?
Omar M. Ahmad, former Chairman of the Board for CAIR outlined the goal of Islam in one of his unguarded moments in a presentation he gave in Fremont, CA, on July 4, 1998. Reporter Lisa Gardner of the San Ramon Valley Herald took down exactly what he said:
"Islam isn't in America to be equal with any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth." Ahmad has since denied this statement, but it has never been retracted by the San Ramon Valley Herald. Reporter Lisa Gardner stands by her story. This is symptomatic of CAIR's activities -- never communicating the real goal of Islam -- only that which they think would be acceptable to American ears. The beginnings of CAIR have their roots in Hamas (which is closely related to the Muslim Brotherhood) -- something CAIR vehemently denies for obvious reasons.
American-born and American-trained imam, Anwar al-Awlaki, is a popular, articulate Muslim leader of American-Yemeni parentage. He is often viewed and read on the internet -- especially in the US and UK campuses. Awlaki is hiding out in Yemen -- his family being quite prominent there. He is not careful at all about stating his violent views regarding Islamic jihad. He is not trying to impress a general US audience like CAIR is in the practice of doing. Awlaki is an Islamic revolutionary who is influencing students both in the US and the UK to enlist for worldwide jihad -- and with some success. For example, two of the Mumbai attackers were Americans -- al-Awlaki's disciples -- also Major Nidal Hassan who killed 13 US soldiers at Fort Hood, TX. Check out al-Awlaki for yourself on YouTube. In his 44 Ways to Support Jihad Awlaki wrote:
"The hatred of the kuffar (infidel/unbeliever) is the central element of our military creed. We need to realize that Allah will not grant us victory as long as we still have some love toward his enemies in our hearts. We will implement the rule of Allah on earth by the tip of the sword whether the masses like it or not."
As stated previously, the Muslim Brotherhood is the oldest, largest and most influential Islamic organization in the world -- founded in 1928 by Sheikh Omar al-Banna. Its stated purpose is: "Allah is our objective, the Prophet is our leader, the Koran is our law, Jihad is our way, and dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope. Allahu akbar!" We must listen to what Muslim leaders and organizations state and take them seriously. Their goal is nothing less than global jihad and eventually a global caliphate. Al-Banna is quoted as saying: "It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet." He also stated: "We will not stop at this point [i.e. freeing Egypt from secularism and modernity] but will pursue this evil force to its own lands, invade its Western heartland, and struggle to overcome it until all the world shouts by the name of the Prophet and the teachings of Islam spread throughout the world. Only then will Muslims achieve their fundamental goal ... and all religion will be exclusively for Allah." Islam is definitely moving in this direction!
Former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide, Muhammed Mahdi Akef told the truth when he said in November 2007: "The Brotherhood uses democracy, but once in power it will replace democracy with fundamentalist shariah law because it is the true democracy." Whatever Muslim organizations and spokespersons say, we must never forget the planned deception Akef has revealed for us. This must always be kept in mind. In Sharia law this is called Taqiyya (Islamic Deception) which is used to further the goal of Islam.
Current Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide, Muhammed Badj, boldly stated in September 2010: "Change that the Muslim nation seeks can only be attained through Jihad and sacrifice and by raising a jihadi generation that pursues death just as the enemies pursue life." Also in September 10: "The Brotherhood calls for jihad against the Muslim's real enemies, not only Israel but also the United States. Waging war against both of these infidels is a commandment of Allah that cannot be discarded." This coincides with fatwas from bin Laden -- and with the Koran itself.
To show how totally incompetent and irresponsible the Obama administration is concerning the Muslim Brotherhood threat, the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper is quoted as saying the Muslim Brotherhood is "mostly secular." He has definitely not done his homework as to what Muslim Brotherhood leaders say about themselves! Then there is Obama's counterterrorism czar who is quoted as saying we ought not to use the word "terrorism" when describing radical Muslim activity -- and then, unbelievably, that "jihad" is a legitimate Islamic tenet. Again, has he read what Muslim Brotherhood leaders state about themselves and their organization?
In the light of what Muslim Brotherhood leaders have said, it is ridiculous for Reuters and others to say the Muslim Brotherhood is a non-violent organization! This is pure propaganda! Who assassinated Egyptian PM Mahmud Fahmi Nuqrasi in 1948? Who assassinated PM Anwar Sadat in 1981? Who is behind the killing of Christian Copts in Egypt? None other than the Muslim Brotherhood.
When you read what Muslim leaders say and write regarding their goal of world domination, you can understand why Islam is the greatest threat we face today. Their words are no idle threats. Over the centuries, but especially in the 20th and 21st centuries, Christians have been murdered by the millions in the name of Allah. The next section of this article will document his fact.
3. How is Islam accomplishing its goal of world conquest? (There is increasing Muslim militancy and aggression.)
If anyone has been following the news recently it is obvious that it is "open season" for Muslims to kill Christians in various parts of the world. This is to be expected when Muslims are taught that "Jihad is our way, and dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope." Who are those who face this holy war (jihad)? It is particularly Christians and Jews -- although all kuffar/unbelievers/infidels are included. Radical Muslim teaching has consequences, and for those who are willing to face reality, the results of Muslim teaching against Christians, particularly, have been horrible. Just recently, here is proof: just as 2010 ended; December 24, Malduguri, Nigeria, six church workers killed in attacks; December 24, Jos Nigeria, 32 killed and 80-100 wounded when three bombs exploded among Christmas shoppers; December 26, Teheran, Iran, 25 Christians arrested by government special security officers; December 30, Bagdad, Iraq, 2 killed and 20 wounded in bombings of 10 Christian homes; December 31, Alexandria, Egypt, 23 killed in bomb blast at Saints Church. The list goes on and on into the new year, 2011.
March 2011 thousands of Christians were forced to flee their homes in Western Ethiopia.
Muslims set fire to about 50 churches and many Christian homes. At least one Christian has been killed and many more injured -- from 3,000 to 10,000 Christians displaced. As is usually the case in crimes like these, Muslim mobs attack Christians because of rumored desecration of the Koran or supposed blasphemy against Mohammed. In the city of Basheno Christians were warned by means of notes on their doors that they were either to convert to Islam, leave the city or face death. What is happening in Ethiopia is not uncommon where a large Muslim population exists alongside a Christian population.
By far the most horrible holocaust perpetrated by Muslims against Christians has taken place in the Sudan under President Omar al-Bashir who has full support of al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood. Under his criminal slaughter of two million Black African Sudanese during the last 20 years, this holocaust ranks with Nazi Germany, the Stalinist years, Cambodian killing fields and the Ottoman Turk murder of Greeks and Armenians at the end of World War I. Over 4 million have been displaced. What is ironic about this whole thing is the large-scale conversion of US African-Americans in recent years to Islam (The Nation of Islam) under the leadership of Louis Farrakhan -- while their Black African brothers and sisters in the Sudan have been systematically slaughtered by an Arab Muslim government in Khartoum. Do Black Muslims really understand how Muslims are eliminating their Black brothers and sisters in the Sudan? Not really. They are kept woefully ignorant of this terrible holocaust.
Some will say, this is the result of radical Muslim teaching: most Muslims are moderate and do not kill Christians and Jews. This may well be true, but moderate Muslims are under great pressure to become "more Islamic" and to follow more closely the Koran/Hadith/Sharia. Here is a case in point. January 2011, moderate governor Salman Taskeek, of Punjab, the largest Pakistani province, was assassinated by one of his own body guards. Taskeek wanted to reform Pakistan's Blasphemy Laws which render anyone worthy of death who dares to "insult Islam" in any way. He dared to oppose radical Islamic movements in Pakistan -- al-Qaeda and the Taliban. The fact that he was assassinated for being a moderate was bad enough, but an estimated 50,000 rallied in Karachi to praise the assassin and to support Pakistan's draconian Blasphemy Laws! This shows us something of how the Muslim world is being radicalized. Taskeek wanted to intervene in the following case because he believed the Blasphemy Laws were inhumane. What he received for this was death from Muslims who hated his moderation.
In November 2010, a 45-year-old Christian farm worker and mother of five, Asia Bibi, was sentenced to hang because she allegedly blasphemed the Prophet Muhammed. She had been held in prison for over a year. Muslim women had asked her to fetch water for them, but they would not touch it because Asia was a Christian. This caused a row, and Asia was arrested and charged with "insulting Islam" which is against Pakistan's Blasphemy Laws. Three million Pakistani Christians live under this kind of "moderate Islam." It is not unusual for Pakistani Christians to be killed for their faith. Recently seven were burned to death in their homes by Muslim mobs in the province of Punjab.
If it were not bad enough for the Governor of Punjab to be assassinated because he wanted to reform Pakistan's Blasphemy Laws, Shabbaz Bhatti, Pakistani Minister for Minority Affairs, was assassinated March 2, 2010, by the same kind of Muslim fanatics who murdered Governor Taskeek. Minister Bhatti was the only Christian in the Pakistani cabinet and ceaselessly labored to reform the Blasphemy Laws and to remove the intolerable burdens placed on religious minorities in Pakistan by Islamic leadership. What did he receive for his efforts? Murder. Islamic fanatics hate anyone sympathizing with Christians almost as much as they hate Christians themselves.
The Muslim carnage against Pakistani Christians continues as might be expected in the name of Allah and the Koran. March 21 two Christians were killed as they left their prayer service at a Hyderabad church. This sort of violence against Christians will only increase in Muslim lands. We must never get used to this kind of evil, and we must continue to denounce it!
Another indication of Muslim radicalism was the joyful reception and hero's welcome of al-Megrahi as he stepped from the plane at Tripoli's airport accompanied by Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's son. Thousands cheered this criminal who killed 270 "infidels" on Pan Am Flight 103. The jet blew up due to a suitcase bomb over Lockerbie, Scotland, killing 259 on board and 11 on the ground. This kind of a reception for al-Megrahi is not an indication of moderation in the Islamic community -- but proof of a radicalization which is taking place.
When 9/11 took place there was great rejoicing in many Palestinian communities, both in the West Bank and in Lebanon, as AK 47s were fired into the air because a great Islamic victory over the hated Americans had taken place in New York and Washington, DC, (as reported in The Times, UK, September 11, 2005). Around the world bin Laden is thought to be a hero by many Muslims because al-Qaeda was able to carry out the horror of 9/11 murdering 3000 in the infidel West. This is not a voice for moderation.
Al-Shabaab, an influential terrorist organization in Somalia considered watching TV during the World Cup to be un-Islamic and decided to kill anyone they found watching the World Cup. (This is the same group which carried out attacks in Kampala, the capital of Uganda.) Killing Somalis watching TV doesn't seem to encourage the idea of Muslim moderation.
February 2011, there was turmoil in Egypt, and no one knows the outcome yet. We think of Egypt as a moderate Islamic country, but in reality it is not: "According to a Pew opinion survey of Egyptians from June 2010, 59% said they back Islamists. Only 27% said they back modernizers. Half of Egyptians support Hamas. Thirty percent support Hizballah and 20% support al Qaida. Moreover 95% of them would welcome Islamic influence over politics." "Eighty two percent of Egyptians support executing adulterers by stoning. 77% support whipping and cutting off the hands of thieves. 85% support executing any Muslim who changes his religion. (quoted in "Our World: Clueless in Washington," The Jerusalem Post, 2/1/11.) So much for the so-called trend toward moderation in the Muslim world. One thing is for certain, the estimated 600,000 members of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt are salivating at the opportunity to exert a more radical Muslim influence. In fact, growing unrest, the so-called "Arab Spring" in the Muslim world -- Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Jordan, Syria, Bahrain etc. -- is surely going to be exploited by the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamists who seek wider Sharia control in those countries. According to radical Islamist al-Awlaki, unrest in Arab countries is an open door for al-Qaeda.
As mentioned earlier in this document, the Saudis have been quite successful in spreading their hateful Wahhabi Sunni Islam around the world using billions of petrodollars. This has been accomplished by building mosques and Koran schools (madrassas) complete with Wahhabi missionaries. This has occurred most notably in Pakistan where about 20,000 madrassas exist today with approximately 1.7 million students. (BBC News, "Pakistan's Islamic Schools in the Spotlight," July 14, 2005) This number has grown exponentially from just a few hundred since Partition in 1947.
November 15, 2001, PBS produced a program on Frontline called "Saudi Time Bomb? exposing the growing menace of Pakistani madrassas." The interviewee was Vali Resa Nasr, Professor of International Politics, Fletcher School of Law, Tufts University. Nasr stated, "They (madrassa students) are recruited from among the lower classes and lower-middle classes. In the Afghan-Pakistan arena, there are members of the Pashtun tribes who enroll in these madrassas. There are peasant children from the peasant backgrounds. And occasionally there are also lower middle-class children they are very able to recruit among people in Pakistan particularly who don't have any access to any other kind of schooling. ... That's why the ideology that's propagated by these schools is so significant in shaping minds in the Muslim world. So if regular schooling is not schooling the people, and schools that propagate fanaticism are schooling people, it doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure what would be the impact on society. I think that one of the tragedies of this story is that the Saudi Arabians exported their problem by financing the schools, the madrassas, all through the Islamic world."
Persecuted Bangladeshi journalist, Salah Urdin Shoaib Choudhury is not afraid to write the truth even though it has placed his life in danger from Muslim extremists. Under the website, ModernGhana.com on March 30, 2009, he posted the article, "Madrassa: Breeding Ground of Jihadists." He writes: "Commenting on Madrassa education, a moderate former student of such religious school said, 'It is true there were good reasons for people jumping to the assumption of the Madrassa's culpability. The terrifyingly ultra-conservative Taliban regime was unquestionably the product of Pakistan's madrassas. Many Madrassas are indeed fundamentalist in their approach to the scriptures and many subscribe to the most hard-line strains of Islamic thought. It is also true that some Madrassas can be directly linked to Islamist radicalism and occasionally to outright civil violence. It is estimated that as many as 80% of Pakistan's Madrassas preach violent jihad, while a few have even been known to provide covert military training.'" "Were it not for the discovery of oil in the Saudi Arabian peninsula and the vast wealth it generated, Wahhabism would likely have remained a fringe movement inside Islam. It was the infusion of this great oil wealth that has allowed Saudi Arabia to export its Wahhabi beliefs in the form of public works projects and religious schools throughout the Muslim world. Saudi nationals formed the initial core cadre of Wahhabi 'missionaries' who have proselytized throughout the Muslim world."
Why is the Afghan war dragging on? With a steady stream of young madrassa jihadists continuing to cross over the border from Pakistan into Afghanistan to fill Taliban ranks, there is little hope of "winning" the war in any sense. Thousands of Pakistani madrassas would have to be neutralized with their almost two million students trained to fight the hated infidels from the West just as soon as they graduate.
Special mention should be made of the leadership and influence of Sheikh Osama bin Laden. On February 23, 1998, he and other prominent Muslim leaders published a fatwa called "Jihad Against Jews and Crusaders." The following statements are taken from that fatwa (a Muslim edict made in the name of Allah): "Praise be to Allah, who revealed the Book, controls the clouds, defeats factionalism and says in His Book: 'but when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them, seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every strategm (of war);' and peace be upon our Prophet, Muhammad Bin-'Abdallah, who said: 'I have been sent with the sword between hands to ensure that no one but Allah is worshipped, Allah who put my livelihood under the shadow of my spear and who inflicts humiliation and scorn on those who disobey my orders." "The ruling (fatwa) to kill the Americans and their allies -- civilians and military -- is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it, in order to liberate the al-Aqsa Mosque and the holy mosque (Mecca) from their grip, and in order for their armies to move out of all the lands of Islam, defeated and unable to threaten any Muslim. This is in accordance with the words of Almighty Allah, 'and fight the pagans all together as they fight you all together,' and 'fight them until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah.' This is in addition to the words of Almighty Allah: 'And why should ye not fight in the cause of Allah and of those who, being weak, are ill-treated (and oppressed)? -- women and children, whose cry is; 'Our Lord, rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from thee one who will help.'" "We - with Allah's help -- call on every Muslim who believes in Allah and wishes to be rewarded to comply with Allah's order to kill the Americans and plunder their money wherever and whenever they find it. We also call on the Muslim ulema (community), leaders, youths, and soldiers to launch the raid on Satan's U.S. troops and the devil's supporters allying with them, and to displace those who are behind them so that they may learn a lesson."
When this fatwa was issued in 1998, U.S. government officials thought little of it. What harm could the pronouncement of a Mideast sheikh have on the only surviving superpower? Yes, it was a declaration of war, but what possibility of serious armed aggression could really happen? Although the U.S. government gave this war declaration little attention, the al-Qaeda organization of bin Laden together with the Muslim Brotherhood network were already planning their attacks. If we didn't listen after the Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, U.S. embassy bombings and the attack against the USS Cole in October, 2000, we listened after 9/11. What bin Laden and his organization accomplished was the most disastrous attack on U. S. soil ever committed -- specifically targeting the three centers of U.S. power -- commercial, military and political (the target of the third place most certainly having been the U.S. Capitol).
Unbelievably, most Americans still do not take seriously bin Laden's declaration of war - and do not take seriously the threat of radical Islam which is targeting the United States today. (Notice that bin Laden is especially targeting Jews and "Crusaders," i.e. Christians, in his fatwa. Also note that his fatwa is decidedly Islamic and religious in nature as he quotes Muhammed and the Koran.) When bin Laden died on May 1, 2011, President Obama made a serious blunder in his remarks the following day: "Bin Laden was not a Muslim leader. He was a murderer of Muslims." Contrary to President Obama, bin Laden was an extremely influential Muslim leader, and he was not a murderer principally of Muslims. He was a murderer of the kuffar/unbelievers -- especially Christians and Jews. Bin Laden specifically stated in his fatwa that Christians and Jews were the targets of his hate -- especially Americans.
The most influential US Muslim student organization is the Muslim Students Association (MSA) with chapters in all major universities involving thousands of members. Its UCLA magazine, "Al-Talib," July 1999, ran an editorial praising bin Laden as a 'freedom fighter.' This is typical of Muslim university students across the country who comprise the MSA. Leaders of the American Muslim community are definitely being radicalized in our universities, and many have been arrested due to terrorist activities. (This will be elaborated later in the document.) As has been stated, the MSA is a front organization for the Muslim Brotherhood, the radical Wahhabi Sunni worldwide network.
Is Islamization happening in America today? There is no doubt. (Please see Section 5.)
Many other examples could be cited proving an increasing Muslim militancy and aggression in the world. Radicalization of moderate Muslims is taking place in the name of fundamental Islam all over the world -- including the United States.
4. What is the history of Muslim aggression against Christianity and the West?
(Muslim aggression dwarfs anything that happened during the Crusades which are always cited by Muslims as an example of Christian aggression.)
After Muhammed died in 632 AD, Muslim armies began their march through the Middle East, North Africa, Spain and halfway into France. The Islamic hordes were stopped at Tours by Charles Martel in 732 AD -- arguably one of the most decisive battles of history. One can only guess how far Islam would have penetrated into Europe if that battle had not been won by Frankish armies. (The "ground-zero mosque imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf has not too subtly named his proposed 15-story, $100 million mosque "Cordoba House." Cordoba, Spain, was the first Muslim headquarters in Europe. The Great Mosque of Cordova was built over a Christian cathedral and became the capital of Moorish Europe celebrating the great victory over Christian Spain.) Cordoba House in Manhattan would nicely serve as a center for US Islamization -- celebrating the 9/11 triumph over U.S. power as symbolized in the World Trade Center destruction. Although Rauf would never admit it -- the name Cordoba House betrays his intentions.)
Is it any wonder that Christians in the West were alarmed when Islamic armies overran two-thirds of all lands occupied by Christians in just 100 years after Mohammed's death?
You can understand why it could be said that the Crusades, even with their injustices, were primarily defensive in nature. (Please see "The Real History of the Crusades" under "Historical Papers" on this website.)
Muslim armies then pushed into what we call today Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, India, Malasia, Indonesia and the Philippines. Any non-biased (non-Muslim) history of these countries will confirm the fact there was ongoing Muslim military conquest. Such conquest confirms the true goal of Islam -- world domination. The proof has been played out in history numerous times -- and is still continuing today.
Continuing on with the clash of civilizations between Islam and Christianity, who can forget the brutal fall of Constantinople in 1453 to Muslim aggression -- the last bastion of Christianity in the East? Then, during the period of WWI, Ottoman Turks slaughtered approximately 1,500,000 Armenians and 500,000 Greeks. It is the very nature of Islam throughout history to either kill or dominate unbelievers (the kuffar). Figures vary, but this was a horrible holocaust which Turks still seek to sweep under the rug. Armenians and Greeks must never let us forget this blatant Muslim aggression which brutally killed their people.
Twice Islam tried to conquer Europe -- once when it was turned back at Tours in 732 AD and again when it was turned back at the gates of Vienna in 1683 AD. When the West gained in military power and technology during the industrial revolution, Islamic countries lagged behind and could not think about conquering Europe militarily. This was frustrating and humiliating to Islam, but the goal to conquer the West was never lost.
Another fact of history slowed Islamic conquest of the West. The Ottoman Empire (the last Muslim Caliphate) was on the losing side during World War I -- collapsing after the war. Instead of gaining on the West, the West gained on Islam. Palestine which had belonged to the Ottoman Empire became a British Mandate -- which galled Muslims to no end. What further galled Muslims was the creation of Israel by the UN in 1947 -- on land formerly belonging to the last Caliphate, the Ottoman Empire. This was seen by Muslims everywhere as encroachment by the West. Not one Islamic nation in the UN voted to sanction the creation of Israel, and as soon as the decision was made, Muslim nations around Israel attacked. The conflict remains to this day. Islamic nations will never accept that Jews have a sovereign country on what they consider to be Muslim soil. This makes them furious and even more hateful toward the Jews. Also, it didn't help Muslims when the wrong side was chosen in World War II -- i.e. the Axis Powers. Again Muslim prestige was damaged.
Islam was in retreat, but something changed all that. Unbelievable wealth poured into Muslim countries as oil was discovered under the sand providing for rapid development of all kinds. Almost overnight, Muslim nations gained in power and prestige. As mentioned before, billions of petrodollars are used to further Muslim penetration into the world -- especially Europe and the United States. Military conquest was not possible, but a new strategy is proving to be quite successful -- immigration, population and penetration.
5. What Islam is doing to Islamize the West -- Europe and the US? (Immigration, population and penetration)
By means of immigration and population, Muslims now number around 50 million in Europe -- with the total population of Europe around 800 million. European democracies naively thought their politically correct ideas of multiculturalism would provide some kind of a "melting pot" for these immigrants -- most of them Muslims. Recently, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Nicolas Sarcozi, and British Prime Minister David Cameron all publically confessed that European multiculturalism has proved to be a disastrous failure. Muslims have not assimilated for the most part and have formed their own ghettos -- colonies, as it were, planted on European soil -- not with the goal of becoming German, French or British -- but with the goal of Islamizing these countries!
Geert Wilders, a Dutch political leader, has long observed what Merkel, Sarcozi and Cameron are now saying. For his efforts he receives death threats from Muslims and must be heavily protected. Unbelievably he is standing trial in Holland for being politically incorrect because he has dared to speak the truth about Islamic ideology. (On the website under "Islam" please see "Geert Wilders on the Islamization of Europe." Also please see "Fitna," a film by Wilders comparing teaching from the Koran with actual terrorist acts. Muslim hackers have tried to take this film off the internet or confuse it with something else, but you can still find it under the website, Jihad Watch.)
Muslims are taught by the Koran not to make friends with Christians, Jews or other non-Muslims: "O you who believe! Do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends: they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide unjust people." (Surah 5:51) As a result of this teaching it is no secret why Muslims generally keep to themselves and do not consider themselves part of the foreign country in which they live. In fact, Muslims generally take an adversarial position towards their host country since it is made up of infidels and is not a Muslim country. Muslims, due to their ideology, cannot have any real loyalty to a non-Muslim government, (although again there are some exceptions like Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy.)
France is about 10% Muslim. There are about 700 "no-go" zones (Muslim ghettos) which the French do not enter unless absolutely necessary. For an illustration of this, please take a look at http://www.youtube.com/embed/A3YQANdvvbY Our mainstream US press does not give us an adequate picture of how serious the Muslim problem is for Europeans. Ask any European how things are, or read the European press. One of the reasons we in the US do not know much about the problem of Muslim colonies in Europe is the false political correctness of "homophobia," (i.e. nothing negative can be said about Islam) which is fostered by US Muslim groups such as CAIR and the mainstream media.
Everywhere Islam has spread in Europe there is increased crime -- especially rape. This is to be expected if Muslims have an adversarial attitude toward their host country. A woman without a hijab (head scarf) is automatically thought of as a prostitute -- an infidel woman simply asking for rape. There is no respect for an infidel -- and especially an infidel woman. "The number of rape charges in Sweden has quadrupled in just above twenty years. Rape cases involving children under the age of 15 are six times as common today as they were a generation ago. Most other kinds of violent crime have rapidly increased, too. Instability is spreading to most urban and suburban areas. Resident aliens from Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia dominate the group of rape suspects. Lawyer Ann Christine Hjelm found that 85% of the convicted rapists were born on foreign soil or from foreign parents. The phenomenon is not restricted to Sweden. The number of rapes committed by Muslim immigrants in Western nations is so extremely high that it is difficult to view these rapes as merely random acts of individuals. It resembles warfare. This is happening in most Western European countries, as well as in other non-Muslim countries such as India. European jails are filling up with Muslims imprisoned for robberies and all kinds of violent crimes, and Muslims bomb European civilians.", (The Brussels Journal, March 28, 2006.)
Malmo, Sweden has the population of about 300,000 with about 50,000 Muslims. "The wave of robberies the city of Malmo has witnessed during this past year is part of a 'war against the Swedes.' This is the explanation given by young robbers from immigrant backgrounds when questioned why they rob native Swedes, in interviews with Petra Akesson for her thesis in sociology. 'I read a report about young robbers in Stockholm and Malmo and wanted to know why they rob other youths. It usually does not involve a lot of money,' she says. She interviewed boys between 15and 17 years old, both individually and in groups. Almost 90% of all robberies reported to the police were committed by gangs (Muslim), not individuals. 'When we are in the city and robbing we are waging a war, a war against the Swedes.'", (The Brussels Journal, March 28, 2006.)
Please notice how Muslims in Sweden think of themselves in opposition to Swedes -- different from Swedish people and not part of them.
In Malmo there are about 700 Jews, and the population is rapidly shrinking. Why? Intimidation and threats from Muslims. This kind of anti-Semitism is growing all over Europe largely because of a growing Muslim population. In 2006 a Muslim gang kidnapped, tortured and killed a young Jewish man, Ilan Halimi, in a Paris suburb. When the gang leader, Youssouf Fofana, was brought to trial he smirked at Halimi's relatives and shouted "Allahu akbari." (please see the website Atlas Shrugs, "Ilan Halimi: Jew Hatred in Europe," 12/17/2010) Muslims around the world should be terribly ashamed and remorseful regarding the kidnapping, torture and killing of Ilan Halimi -- but such is not the case.
Why is there such rabid hatred for Jews in the Muslim community? One simple answer -- the Koran. We have already seen how the Koran commands the killing of infidels/unbelievers -- i.e. Christians, Jews and others. But there seems to be a special hatred reserved for Jews which the Koran encourages: "Shall I inform you of [what is] worse than that as penalty from Allah? [It is that of] those whom Allah has cursed and with whom He became angry and made of them apes and pigs and slaves of Taghut (the Jews). Those are worse in position and further astray from the sound way." (Surah 5:60) "And the Jews say, 'The hand of Allah is chained.' Chained are their hands, and cursed are they for what they say. Rather, both His hands are extended; He spends however He wills. And that which has been revealed to you from your Lord will surely increase many of them in transgression and disbelief. And We have cast among them animosity and hatred until the Day of Resurrection. Every time they kindled the fire of war [against you], Allah extinguished it. And they strive throughout the land [causing] corruption, and Allah does not like corrupters." (Surah 5:64)
Some in the US government have taken to speaking of the Koran as "The Holy Koran." This is ignorance and an insult to human intelligence. Any religious book that teaches the killing of anyone who does not agree with it is not holy: it is unspeakably evil. Adolf Hitler in his book, Mein Kampf, taught a special hatred toward the Jews -- which people he called "the Jewish peril." Muslims do the same thing when they teach the Koran. It is the same racism, bigotry and hatred toward Jews.
Dr. Nicolai Sennels, a licensed Danish psychologist, has written a book entitled Among Criminal Muslims, A Psychologist's experiences from Copenhagen. This book is the result of work with youth criminals at the Copenhagen prison, Sonderbro, -- 70% of which are Muslim. In summary he concludes that aggressive behavior is socially accepted in Muslim families and culture. Also Muslim culture focuses on finding outer causes for one's own problems and diminishes the motivation to take responsibility for one's own life. Strong identification with culture and religion tends to create a feeling of opposition to other cultures. (http://nicolaisennels.dk/?page_id=825)
You would think continued exposure to Western democracies would increase the desire of Muslims for the freedoms of religion, press, assembly and speech. Sadly this is not the case for many. In his book, The Multicultural Paradox, 2007, page 7, Tim R. McDonald reveals some sobering statistics coming out of the UK. "The reality of militant extremism is grim. Recent surveys have found that when presented with a hypothetical situation 13 percent of British Muslims defended terrorism, and 1 percent said to have 'actively engaged in, or supported' terrorism.' At least 3000 British Muslims have passed through training camps sponsored by or affiliated with Osama bin Laden. No less than 28 percent of British Muslims would like to see 'Britain as an Islamic state.' Further, 22 percent believed the July 7th bombings were justified by British involvement in the War on Terror, and 78 percent have agreed or strongly to the statement that 'those who published the Danish cartoons should be punished.'" Facts like these show that many Muslims retain a very aggressive stance against the West even when they enjoy the freedoms afforded to them while living in the West. In other words, the Muslim community in the West is definitely influenced by radical Muslim teaching even while enjoying freedoms the West affords them.
Even on UK campuses radical Islam has flourished. This is hard to explain when it is occurring in the very citadels of liberal education (liberal in the old sense of the term). Redbrick, the University of Birmingham's student newspaper reported on April 16, 2011: "Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a former student of University College London (UCL) and president of the university's Islamic Society, attempted to blow up a transatlantic flight to Detroit on Christmas Day 2009. Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly, a former student at the University of Bedfordshire, killed himself when he detonated his explosive device in Stockholm. These terrorist attempts have led to fears that both men may have been radicalized on their respective campuses, with Prime Minister David Cameron declaring more needed to be done to 'de-radicalise' our universities." Much more could be said about this, but the process of Islamization in the UK and in all of Europe is a serious problem. Suffice it to say that Muslim immigration, multiplication and penetration in Europe has been a disaster for the West.
It should be added that Muslim immigration, population and penetration are also at work in Australia and New Zealand. And the imams of Australia preach hatred just as the imams of Europe and the UK. The head imam of Australia, Sheik al-Hilaly, stated in 2006: "Those atheists, the people of the book (Christians and Jews), where will they end up? In Surfers Paradise? On the Gold Coast? Where will they end up? In hell. And not part-time. For eternity. They are the worst of Allah's creation." (The Australian, "What Sheik al-Hilaly said," October 27, 2006) Where does Sheik al-Hilaly get his information? Where else? The Koran. "And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, then surely, for him is the fire of Hell, and he shall dwell therein forever." (Surah 72:23) Is radical Islam infecting Australia and New Zealand? There is no doubt that "down under" has a huge problem with Islamic radicalism.
In his statement also printed in The Australian, al-Hilaly blamed Australian women for their own rapes since they do not cover themselves like Muslim women do. As in other parts of the world, Muslim men blame non-Muslim women for their rapes. Sheik al-Hilaly, the highest ranking Muslim in Australia compared Australian women to an uncovered piece of meat which any cat would eat. "If you take uncovered meat and put it on the street, on the pavement, in a garden, in a park or the backyard, without a cover and the cats eat it, is it the fault of the cat or the uncovered meat? The uncovered meat is the problem." With Muslims like this immigrating and populating in the West, we have serious problem -- especially since it is encouraged by the imams. As you can imagine, there is an epidemic of sexual assaults on Australian women by Muslims.
In the West we need more politicians with backbone like Australian PM John Howard, 1996-2007, and some of his Ministers. In 2007 Howard observed: "This is our country, our land, and our lifestyle, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about our Flag, our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you to take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'The Right to Leave.' If you aren't happy here, then leave. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country you accepted." Howard's Treasurer, Peter Costello said it well: "I'd be saying to clerics who are teaching there are two laws governing people in Australia: one the Australian law and another Islamic law; that is false. If you can't agree with parliamentary law, independent courts, democracy, and would prefer Sharia law and have the opportunity to go to another country, which practices it, perhaps, then, that's a better option." Then his Education Minister, Brendan Nelson wisely observed: "Muslims who do not want to be Australians, and who don't want to live by Australian values and understand them, well then, they can basically clear off." (Please see website, sportsvorum.com, "Prime Minister John Howard's Speech on Immigration.", October 31, 2007.)
US multicuralism couldn't end up with the same disaster Europe is experiencing -- could it? Our main population centers like New York, Chicago and Los Angeles are already experiencing rapid Islamic growth -- much more than the general population. In 1990 New York City had only a few mosques, but now they number around 175. (We must never forget that the first attack in 1993 on the World Trade Center was carried out by members of the Al Farouk mosque in Brooklyn.) Of the 8 million comprising New York City about 600,000 are Muslim, and of the 1.1 million public school students, about 10% are Muslim. The same rapid Muslim growth could be cited for Chicago and Los Angeles. Although the Detroit/Dearborn area of Michigan has fewer Muslims than other major population centers, it has the highest concentration of Muslims in the US. What has happened there is not encouraging when we see what high numbers of Muslims do to American democracy.
Fordson High School in Dearborn is about 80% Muslim and until recently had a Muslim principal by the name of Imad Fadlallah -- a relative of Hezbollah spiritual leader Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah. Because of that, some nicknamed Fordson High School "Hezbollah High." The principal Fadlallah openly stated that Fordson is a Muslim high school and singled out Christian teachers and staff for dismissal. He was so angered by the conversion of one of his Muslim students at a Christian camp he did not renew the contract of an outstanding Christian wrestling coach of 35 years -- Gerald Marszalek -- a coach of legendary status in the Michigan wresting community. Marszalek encouraged his students to attend the camp which had no connection with the school or Marszalek's coaching program. Fadlallah also told voluntary wrestling coach, Troy Hancock, a Christian pastor in the community, he was persona non grata. He was not allowed to show up at the school even though his son was an outstanding wrestler on the Fordson team. When the student who converted to Christianity showed up on campus, Principal Fadlallah punched him and told him in front of other students he was a disgrace to his family.
Abuse of power by Muslims and un-democratic activities by Muslims can't happen in the good 'ol USA? Right? Wrong! They can and do happen when Muslims gain power and control through numbers. Dearborn, Michigan, is a case in point. Thankfully a lawsuit was brought by Coach Marszalek against the school and Principal Fadlallah which came out positively for both Coach Marszalek and volunteer coach Hancock. Principal Fadlallah acted according to his Muslim convictions as one might expect, since Muslim convictions do not conform to American democracy. Why should they since by nature Islam is un-democratic? Could this happen elsewhere in America when the numbers of Muslims approach the majority in some areas? We need only to look to Europe where the Islamization process is further along than it is here. (Thomas More Law Center website, "Lawsuit filed against Dearborn schools and Muslim principal over firing of Christian wrestling coach", July 27, 2009.)
To show how Sharia law can be enforced in US, at the Dearborn Arab International Festival, Christian missionaries were arrested by the Dearborn police for handing out Gospels of John in English and Arabic. Christians could use booth space at the Festival for which they would have to pay a fee, but under no circumstances could Christians exercise their Constitutional right of free speech and freedom of religion at or near the Festival because Dearborn authorities feared they might offend the numerous Muslim population. Sharia law prohibits any proselytization of Muslims, and Dearborn authorities have knuckled under to Sharia law -- plain and simple. "Arrested were Negreen Mayel (who escaped from Afghanistan with her parents and recently converted to Christ), Dr. Nabeel Qureshi, Paul Reskalia and David Wood." "Dr. Nabeel Qureshi is a former Muslim who converted to Christianity. He holds an MD from Eastern Virginia Medical School and an MA in Christian Apologetics from Biola University" "'These Christian missionaries were exercising their Constitutional rights to free speech and the free exercise of religion, but apparently the Constitution carries little weight in Dearborn where the Muslim population seems to dominate the political apparatus,' said Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center." (Christian Examiner, "Four Christians Arrested Outside Arab Festival," June 2010) A jury later acquitted the four, but they never should have been arrested in the first place and should never have had to stand trial. Don't ever think for a minute that there will be any Constitutional protections if you live in a high-density Muslim community in the US. Dearborn proves that.
Islamization of America is more advanced than we might expect. The following quotes are taken from "Sharia: The Threat to America, The Center for Policy Security" (posted on the web): "Thanks to the HLF trial (the Holy Land Foundation trial in Dallas, 2008), it is now public knowledge that nearly every major Muslim organization in the United States is actually controlled by the MB (Muslim Brotherhood) or a derivative organization. Consequently, most of the Muslim-American groups of any prominence in America are now known to be, as a matter of fact, hostile to the United States and the Constitution." (page 66) "The Brotherhood has succeeded in penetrating our educational, legal and political systems, as well as top levels of government, intelligence, the media, and U.S. military, virtually paralyzing our ability to respond effectively." (page 28)
Sadly, our current US administration largely ignores this fact for reasons which are hard to comprehend -- unless it is deliberate -- unless CAIR has the ear of our top leaders.
During the Clinton years Abdurrahman Alamoudi, a Muslim Brotherhood operative, reached a high position in the government and was given responsibility to organize and operate the Muslim chaplain program for the U.S. military -- nominating and approving chaplains. As a result, those given positions as chaplains brought with them the Wahhabi form of Islam -- the worst kind. Alamoudi saw to that. He also organized the training of U.S. Muslim military chaplains. He was finally arrested in 2003 when his ties with terrorism were uncovered, ("Sharia: The Threat to America," pages 75-6) This is just one example of MB penetration into our government -- a phenomenon which no doubt is continuing today. (Please see Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America, WND Books, 2009, by Paul Sperry and David Gaubatz. This book gives definite proof of CAIR's sponsorship of Hamas and the penetration into our government by Muslim subversives.)
There is no doubt that radical Muslim operatives exist in the US as "moles" who can prove useful to the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda. A case in point made front page news in the New York Times, April 26, 2011. Saifullah Paracha was a successful businessman and long-time New York travel agent. He was part of a circle of al-Qaeda operatives who wanted to follow up 9/11 with other deadly attacks. Paracha accepted about $500,000 from Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the 9/11 planner, to develop the shipping of plastic explosives into the US using containers for women's and children's clothing. Thank God, Paracha and some of his associates are now in Guantanamo. How many more of these "moles" are out there? Who knows? And yet, the majority of Americans are not that concerned about the threat of radical Islam right in our own country -- right in our own communities.
In terms of radical Muslim penetration into US society, there are many rocks which could be overturned in order to find shocking facts. Stephen Schwartz exposes one aspect in his article, "Radical Muslims are Taking Over U.S. Prisons," Weekly Standard, April 24, 2006. He writes this as a first-hand investigator. "The federal, state, and city jails in American have allowed the seizure of a privileged position for missionaries of Wahhabism, the state religious sect of Saudi Arabia." "Wahhabis serve as chaplains at all levels of incarceration in America. They are mainly certified and trained as religious officials by two groups: The Islamic Society of North American (ISNA) and the Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences (GSISS), which moved to Ashburn, Virginia, after renaming itself Cordoba University in 2005. Both ISNA and GSISS represent forms of radical Islam aligned with Wahhabism, and both are currently under federal investigation for ties to terrorism."

These videos have to do with Muslim African-American ex-cons forming their own communities after being released from prison.
Just one more rock overturned among many has to do with the Muslim Students Association with chapters on hundreds of US college campus campuses (mentioned earlier in this document). If you aren't convinced that America is experiencing Islamization, read these selections from the article, "Terrorists recruiting on US campuses," by Kal El, March 23, 2011, on the web site, infidelsarecool.com. "The MSA (Muslim Students Association) is a supposedly 'mainstream' group that has long operated on college campuses from coast to coast. Yet a 2007 New York Police Department report identified the organization as an 'incubator' for Islamic radicalism. Former FBI Special Agent John Guandolo told CBN News that the problem can be traced back to the group's roots in the Muslim Brotherhood -- a jihadist movement that seeks to establish Islamic Sharia law worldwide." "Their goal, both from their senior leaders, presidents of MSA's around the country, national leadership, is to implement Islamic government here in the United States." "And they say that." In fact, the MSA Pledge of Allegiance says as much: "Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur'an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope." [You will note how similar this is to the Muslim Brotherhood motto quoted in "2. What is the goal of Islam? (It is world conquest.)"]
Who are some of the Muslim Students Association infamous alumni? Anwar al-awlaki was mentioned previously in this document and is linked to terror plots from Fort Hood to Times Square and beyond. He was president of MSA at Colorado State University in the mid-60's. Ramy Zamzam was president of the MSA Washington, D.C. council and was convicted in Pakistan for attempting to join the Taliban in order to kill American troops. Omar Hammami is a leader of the al-Shabaab terrorist group in Somalia and was president of the MSA at the University of South Alabama. Isn't it great that we train Muslim terrorists right on our major American campuses? Unbelievably our great universities still recognize the Muslim Students Association as a bona fide campus organization in spite of its connection with the Muslim Brotherhood. (www.jihadwatch.org, "Muslim Students Association: 'the mother ship of all the Muslim Brotherhood front groups,'" 4/20/2011)
The Muslim Students Association together with the affiliated Students for Justice in Palestine has been involved in harassing and intimidating Jewish and Christian students on US campuses. A case in point is the attack on Jessica Felber, a Jewish UC Berkeley student who was holding a sign stating "Israel Wants Peace" while attending a pro-Israel event. A Muslim UC Berkeley leader of the Students for Justice in Palestine, Husam Zakharia, physically attacked Jessica injuring her. She is filing suit against the perpetrator and against the university for failing to protect her from Muslim intimidation.
It's amazing that racism and bigotry against Jews by Muslims on our college and university campuses is tolerated and ignored. Where is the ACLU? Where are those who defend civil rights? They are decidedly absent because the perpetrators are Muslims who intimidate any who speak against them. (frontpagemagazine, "Jewish Student Sues UC Berkeley over Muslim Assault," March 8, 2011)
To show how radically indoctrinated many Muslim students are on US campuses, there is a video on "youtube" showing David Horowitz in confrontation with a MSA student on the UCSD (University of California in San Diego) campus, 5/10/10. To summarize, Horowitz quotes the head of Hezbollah in Lebanon as wanting all Jews to come to Israel so he can kill them all at once without having to hunt them all over the world. He asks the MSA student leader if she is for it or against it. With no reservation she said she is for it! This is the level of hatred and bigotry many Muslims are being taught on US campuses. The same MSA leader invited everyone to their Hitler Youth Week on the UCSD campus. After the Holocaust, everyone repeated "never again" -- but not Muslims in the MSA and elsewhere who celebrate what Hitler did. (It is recommended that you check out "David Horowitz Freedom Center" on the web. The introductory video is excellent.)
Yes, Muslims have even penetrated the US House of Representatives, Keith Ellison (D-MN) and Andre Carson (D-IN). Although it was initially denied by both Ellison and the Muslim-American Society of Minnesota, Ellison received $13,500 from the society to pay for his Haj to Mecca. No connection there? The Muslim-American Society is a front organization for the Muslim Brotherhood. As has been noted, most Muslim organizations in the US have ties with the Muslim Brotherhood which has as its goal to spread hateful Wahhabi Sunni Islam any way it can. As mentioned before, The Holy Land Foundation trials in Dallas, 2007 and 2008, uncovered the entire network of US Muslim Brotherhood affiliates and ended with convictions of those who funneled millions of dollars into terrorist organizations like Hamas. Those convicted belonged to innocent-sounding groups which operate as front organizations for the Muslim Brotherhood.
Rep. Ellison (a.k.a Keith Hakim, Keith X Ellison, Keith Ellison-Muhammed) was a self-avowed member of the Nation of Islam when he first ran for office in 1998 under the name of Keith Ellison-Muhammed. Ellison denies this, but it is a manner of record.

Arif Alikhan and Kareem Shora are highly-placed Muslims in the US Department of Homeland Security which is charged with tracking subversive activity. When these two were appointed by the administration, they were described as "devout Muslims." (Can you ever remember any appointees to US government positions described as "devout Christians" or "devout Jews?") If "devout" means believing and obeying the Koran, then we're in trouble. Has anyone in our government ever read the Koran? If these DHS investigators are those who may need to be investigated for subversive activity, how much information do you think would be uncovered? To show how effective Arif Alikhan will be in uncovering terror suspects in the US, as Deputy Mayor of Los Angeles he stifled terror tracking by the LAPD -- stopping the monitoring of radical Muslim activity. (discoverthenetworks.org, "Purported Non-Muslim President Obama Makes High Level Appointment to DHS," by Vincent Gioia, September 20, 2009)
Why are the trials of Muslim criminals in Guantanamo being held up? Why is the trial of Major Nidal Hasan being held up? Why is the investigation of CAIR being held up. It seems that the Obama administration is loath to prosecute Muslims because of what appears to be a sympathy towards Islam. Captain Kirk Lippold, USS Cole, has had to wait eleven long years since the bombing of his ship in 2000 which killed 17 of his young sailors. The killer, al-Nashiri, has still not been executed for his heinous crime. The DOJ is seriously negligent in its prosecution of Muslim terrorists and does not fairly represent our American justice system.
Yes, the US is being Islamized with a Muslim tactic called dawah. Whereas jihad is the overt tactic, dawah is the covert one. (www.faithfreedom.org, "The Role of Da'wah in the Islamic Onslaught Against Dar al-Harb")
6. What is the goal of current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? (The stated goal is democratization -- an impossible goal in any Muslim country.)
Between the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, about 5,500 US troops have been killed and approximately 1.25 trillion dollars have been spent. Why? Because the US government wants to create two key Mideast democratic countries. That is an impossibity because of the very nature of Islam. Article Two of the Iraqi Constitution states: "Islam is the official religion of the State and is a fundamental source of legislation." "No law that contradicts the established provisions of Islam may be established." Article Two of the Afghani Constitution reads as follows: "The religion of this State of Afghanistan is the sacred religion of Islam."
Islam has decreed that anyone converting to any other religion is to be put to death. In other words, the governments of Iraq and Afghanistan can legally execute anyone who leaves the "sacred religion of Islam" according to their constitutions which are founded in Islam. It doesn't matter what kind of democratic wording is found in both constitutions: there can be no freedom of religion because conversion to another religion is a crime. And if there is no freedom of religion, there is no freedom. This is what has cost us so dearly in American blood and treasure -- two Muslim states which have no freedom of religion? One drop of blood and one dollar spent is too much for Iraq and Afghanistan because they will never change the evil of Sharia law which is at the heart of Islam!
May 2010, Musa Sayed, an Afghan Red Cross worker, was arrested on apostasy charges along with another man, Ahmad Shah. (This is not the first time this has happened.) The Afghan Constitution forbids conversion from Islam to another religion -- the crime being punishable by death. The Afghani government wanted to put him to death, but Sayed was recently released due to international pressure (Al Arabiya News, "Afghan convert to Christianity flees to Europe," March 19, 2011) For this our troops are paying the ultimate sacrifice?
Conclusion: Islamic aggression past and present is a fact which no one can deny. It has been and is especially destructive for Christians and Jews. It would be foolish and dangerous not to take the present threat of Islamic world domination seriously.
It is the hope of this writer that the West will awaken from its slumber and recognize the major threat of Islam -- a politico-religious ideology which compares with past ideologies having as their goal world conquest. Muslim leaders have told us their plans if we will but listen to them and take them seriously.
Muslim world population is about 2.2 billion. Some have estimated that about 10% of Muslims have been radicalized -- which works out to perhaps 2.2 million. How much of a threat is that? Such figures give little comfort. The 9/11 tragedy, caused by only 19 radical Wahhabi Sunni Muslim hijackers, resulted in over 3000 deaths in New York, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania.
Although most Muslim leaders hide their true goal of world domination, former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Muhadi Akef told the truth, and we had better pay attention: "The Brotherhood uses democracy, but once in power it will replace democracy with fundamentalist shariah law because it is true democracy." As stated previously in this document, the Muslim Brotherhood is the parent organization of almost every major Muslim organization in the US.
We owe a great debt to experts from The Center for Security Policy who have made available online one of the best exposes of Muslim Brotherhood worldwide power and influence. The 149-page study is called: "Sharia: the Threat to America." If we choose to remain ignorant of what this study reveals, we do so at our own peril.
As stated at the beginning of this paper, Christians love their enemies and seek to win them to Christ. But as Christians we would be extremely foolish to ignore the schemes of Islamists which war against us -- especially since they and their Koran have made it plain that we are their enemies to be subdued and killed. We must be prepared and informed: "Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes." (Ephesians 6:11.)
Ultimately the enemy behind Islam is none other than Satan himself. Islamists are only pawns of the evil one. "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." (Ephesians 6:12.)
